Chicago Tribune Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Mary Schmich discusses her book Even The Terrible Things Seem Beautiful to Me Now: On Hope, Loss, and Wearing Sunscreen.
What it means when your father dies. How it feels when summer comes. What it’s like to live in a great but troubled American city. The value of wearing sunscreen. These are some of the topics that Schmich addresses in her book, a collection of columns from the Chicago Tribune, including the 10 that won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary.
Mary Schmich will discuss her book in conversation with Bina Martin, Second City faculty member, director, performer, and co-author of the Miss Manners column.
